Are ALL manual focus primes soft on XTrans cameras?

I think you've misunderstood me

What I meant was that have you checked the softness is due to the lens or adapter by eliminating any possible errors such as mis-focussing or camera shake ?

Cameras with higher MP sensors are more prone to showing up small camera shake than ones like the S5 with only 6MP.

Also I found using the focus peaking that it wasn't good enough for really critical focus, and with a lens with such a shallow DOF as the 85 wide open then you might want to check that by using the 10x magnification with peaking turned off.


EDIT the Rokinon is a modern lens and shouldn't have the same issues as the old lenses I was talking about

If you think it is the adapter why not try to get an exchange for another one ?
